Cisser Mæhl is a danish composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist, currently living and working in Oslo, Norway. The 3rd of March 2023 she released her debut album Innemuseum at the Berlin based label Sonic Pieces. Her way of approaching the world musically is reminiscent of a careful listening for the fascination and wonder of inner-worldly encounters. Her acoustic/electronic instruments are enriched by her gentle voice. Her music leaves the necessary gap for a visual language that is allowed to develop without the danger of being crushed by an acoustic level.
She works with music production in interdisciplinary collaborations and composes music for films, games, performance arts and litterature. The collaboration with her is always described as inspiring, pleasant and enriching.
